and another one for Karen
Thank you for the Laundry Bag and the effort involved in making such an item.
It has come in handy over here and it has made it easier to identify my washing upon pick up.
Laundry Bags are a great idea and I thank you again for the great gift. I will look after it as it will be used for years as I travel with the Army.
Please pass on my thanks to all who contribute their support to the troops overseas and back home
Dear Annette, Lynne and Carol
I am just dropping you a quick note to say thank you for the Aussie hero quilt :)
Your volunteer work and dedication is very much appreciated and I thank you for your support of me and all of us over here.
Your quilt is fantastic and keeps me warm while sitting down watching movies and getting some down time when I can, thank you also for your note it is nice to hear of people enjoying their spare time I am a tragic fisherman as well ( not due to my dedication but my tragic results at attempting to fish :P ).
Best of luck on your next fishing trip.
Thank you again for the quilt and your support.
I am writing to you to extend a huge thankyou for the very stylish laundry bag that you have sent to the Middle East.
I in Afghanistan. The conditions are quite harsh over here, and I really do feel for the young men 'outside the wire' braving a tenacious enemy day in and out. I have been deployed now for 2 months and have another 2 months remaining. I can tell you that I am missing the beautiful Australian beaches and fresh air right now!
Well, thankyou again for the laundry bag. I am very touched by the very kind nature of Australians in donating items and food to us over here. It makes me very proud to serve for our great country and serve for the wonderful Australians like yourself.
The following thank you is for a quilt resulting from a quilt top Lynn sent me.
I received your quilt a couple of days ago and can I say a giant thank you for the time and effort that you must of put into the quilt and laundry bag. I have also stored the chocies away for a little later as right now I'm on a health kick and have currently shed 18 kg BUT I will be enjoying those on my next free meal off. I would also like to let you know the smiles I have seen on everyone that has received one of your team's quilts face, I know for me personally it meant a lot to me and it something that I will look after and use for a long long time. I am trying to get everyone that got one to grab a group photo holding their quilt with the ships in the back ground to send to you, again thank you for all your efforts.
Many thank for the excellent quilt.
I have it currently on my bed and will send a picture as soon as I can.
Forgive me that it has taken a couple of weeks to reply but I have been away from my usual area for a month and have only just returned.
No photos for tonight's post so instead I will leave you with some pictures of ANZAC Day in Afghanistan last year in the hope that it will act as inspiration for all of you with the ANZAC Day laundry bag challenge coming up.
